Fudge Crinkle Cookies

Print Friendly

These cookies are seriously so quick and easy to make, but taste like you spent a lot of time on them. They are so fudgy and chewy- I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t like them.

The best part about these cookies is that they only require 4 ingredients (and I bet that you have them in your pantry right now!).

Fudge Crinkle Cookies
1 (15.25 oz) box Devil’s Food cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup powdered sugar (for rolling the cookies in)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together the dry cake mix (do not follow directions on the box- you just want to use the dry ingredients that are in the box), oil and eggs in a large bowl until dough forms. Dust hands with confectioners’ sugar and shape dough into 1- 1.5″ balls. Roll balls in confectioners’ sugar and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until center is JUST SET. Remove from pans after a minute or so and cool on wire racks.

    I just made a recipe using yellow cake mix, the oil and 2 eggs, and then choc. chips and coconut. They were so delicious and chewy. I know these will be good too!

    I have made cookies just like these, and after they come out of the oven, I press a peppermint pattie into the top of each cookie. Yum! Thanks for sharing all your yummy recipes!

    Oh–I forgot all about these for Christmas. They are so easy and yes–delicious. Alot less work than the chocolate crinkle recipe that has been around for years. Just as good–if not better–dare I say !

    why did mine not turn into “balls” the dough was super sticky like thick cake batter or a slightly too thin frosting. i plopped spoonfulls in the powdered sugar and “rolled” it into balls, but they instantly spread on the cookie sheet. we’ll see how they turn out… thoughts?

      We have never had a problem with these cookies. They turn out so well. Does your cake mix ounces match ours?
